The RIST2 project is starting


The researches at high-elevation sites continues, thanks to the RiST2 project (co-financed by Fondazione CRT of Torino). The study area is the Bessanese glacial basin. The main research activities consist in the continuation of studies on the relation between climate variability and morphodynamic processes, with particular reference to the role of temperature and the thermal properties of geological materials (e.g. rock, debris, water). The use of micro data logger metrologically referenced and with known uncertainty of measurements allows an innovative approach towards the studied topics.
